It was INCREDIBLE.
The Newcastle comeback years ago was special too.
But IMO our best win was St George prelim. It wasn’t a comeback win: it was just the best match, best atmosphere and most satisfying victory I’ve ever watched.

RE: Signing Suggestions & Rumours
People here bandy players values about as if they know the exact wages each should deserve.
But value isn’t predetermined, it is decided by what the market will pay.
A wealthy man stuck in the desert who is desperately thirsty will pay $10 for a bottle of water. He will consider it a bargain, even despite knowing that the avg punter only pays $3.
We are that man in the desert.
Latrell may not be worth $900k+ to the Roosters, but he is worth that to us.
RE: If Madge fails.....
True winners don’t like to surround themselves with losers
If we haven’t made the 8 by the end of 2021 …he won’t stay
Madge is arguably the best signing the club has made since Ellis and is easily the best coach we have had since Sheens.
He is a class act.
Keeping him is not negotiable IMO.
RE: Signing Suggestions & Rumours
Have the club gone crazy - 1.1 million x 3 years for Mitchell. Lol
Maybe good for a lot of teams - not for us (with our roster at the moment) imo.
Worth every penny. I’d make it 4 years.
I agree, but bad luck we are dealing in dollars $$$$ Lol
In that time the cap will go up and we will have the best centre in the world, maybe one of the greatest rugby league centres ever plus we will have a gun goalkicker.
He doesn’t just fill 2/3 pieces we are looking for right now, he smashes it.
If there is any other player that can bring back life and hope to the club, if there is any more destructive back on his day (maybe except for teddy) , if there is any other player that can bring back the fans, then I’m a monkeys.
This guy is it.
Greg Inglis had his lazy days too…who cares? Latrell is Inglis mk2.
If we don’t pay up someone else will and we will lick our wounds while we struggle to sign whoever is left on the scrap heap.
Get this done Wests Tigers!!!
Brooks and Marsters redemption
Putting my hand up here: I’m a critic of Brooks but he was very solid tonight.
Credit where it’s due.
Marsters kicking was a crucial factor in tonight’s game. Well bloody done.
Big kudos Madge for keeping faith after such a horrible loss.
Up the Tigers!!!
RE: Wests Tigers keen to take Matt Moylan off Cronulla’s books
I was a Moylan fan when he burst in the scene.
But, he never delivered consistently and clearly hasn’t been easy to work alongside.
If he stayed as hot as he was 3 years ago he probably wouldn’t be on the market.
I am one who never thinks we should pass on talent, but this guy looks like a headache and doesn’t fill me with any confidence.
Strong Finish 💪🏼
A strong finish (3 wins) and a few results go our way we could finish as high as 7th.
A strong finish (3 wins) and results go as predicted we could finish 8th ….or 9th.
A weaker finish (2 wins or 1 win) we finish 9th-13th.
A disastrous finish (0 wins) with results going against us we could slide to 14th.
Come on Tigers!!
Let’s forget about what happens if we lose a game, just win all 3!
Knock over the Sharkies, stick it to the Cleary’s and then take care of the Dogs!
Let’s friggin do this!!

RE: Hastings VS Brooks
I think its as clear as day that Hastings is gonna be the halfback next season the club may say he’s going to be a ball playing lock but that’s like an elephant wearing a dress its just not gonna happen. So who would you rather have be halfback Hastings or Brooks ?
Surely Hastings is going to be halfback. So rather, the question is what to do with Brooks.
All of our main criticisms have to do with the fact that Brooks is not an effective halfback.
As much as I think he is a liability and that we should be ending the Brooks era, I’m trying to be realistic.
Will he be dropped, moved on, or go to a bench role? I just don’t think this will happen.
Can he move to hooker? Maybe. I wouldn’t write it off, but I doubt it will happen.
Can he be a 5/8? This is more likely I feel.
He’ll have no pressure to run the attack, won’t be first choice 6th play kicker, won’t need to control the game, won’t be criticised for not executing in critical moments.
As long as he HAS to be here, so long as he is not wearing 7 then I guess that’s the best we can hope for.
RE: Madge Maguire - Mega Thread
With Sheens looking after pathways & development, all we need are a new strength and conditioning team and a couple of assistants that can look after video analysis, tactics & addressing the players. That should give Madge everything he needs to be a successful coach in the modern era
i.e. assuming he has already sorted the gym…
RE: Films - not movies
More bad news.
Rest in Peace.
Noooooo, I loved Norm. Wasn’t looking too good the last few times I saw him on things.
He was one of the GOATS for sure.
Cancer = disgusting
RE: Luke Brooks
Bit of an epic thread eh?
15 months, almost 6000 posts.
Have we come to a conclusion>?
Came to a conclusion 6000 posts ago.
Can’t be true. He’s still here and this thread is still going. Tell me what you think?
What?! He’s still here?!
